I own three, 9,10 & 11' GSB Lami blanks. Top rate rods wrapped by a master. Worth looking into, nothing to say but thumbs up.

Soleman' I had 2 rods built by a upstanding member of this board (BIG COUNTRY) who gave me a good price and excellent workmanship.

10'Lami 1201L and a 9'er. The man stands behind his work. I forget the name of the 9' blank but I'm sure he'll be glad to clue you in on what he uses.

P.S. I think it's called a Rainshadow

Altenkircks sucks!! it is a shadow of what it used to be when Hank's father ran it. The guy doesn't wrap himself and has kids sometimes build behind the shop. Go with Stan a guy I know personally for over 35 years, stands behind his product and actually fishes with them. If you need a shop in Hampton Bays; go see Don at East End. At least he still fishes and isn't living off his Fathers legacy. Rumor has it Altenkirks is closing so any guarantee you have will be short lived.
